Planters Co. said Friday it is recalling some bags of Honey Roasted Cashews because they may contain peanuts that could be fatal to people allergic to them.

The 2-ounce bags were distributed to stores in eastern and southern states, Northern California and Hawaii. The blue metallic bags are stamped with the numbers 1-7-98. The package ingredients do not list peanuts.

No other Planters products are affected, the company said.

Peanut allergies can cause serious or life-threatening reactions.

Planters said consumers with peanut allergies who have bought the cashews should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
